YMMV / Treasure Planet

  • Angst? What Angst?: Lampshaded by Silver when he throws away the treasure to save Jim.
    Jim: Silver! You gave up—!
    Silver: Just a lifelong obsession, Jimbo. I'll get over it.
  • Awesome Music: "I'm Still Here" and "Always Know Where You Are". Provided by John Rzeznik.
  • Base Breaker: B.E.N. People will either find him hilarious or just annoying.
  • Crossover Ship:
    • Amelia with Jane Porter.
    • Jim with a lot of different characters.
  • Cult Classic: Considered by fans to be a forgotten Disney classic.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Captain Amelia, partially due to being the major Token Chick in the film, considering that there was a severe lack of female characters in the original Robert Louis Stevenson novel, mostly because she's a Badass, snarky, Lady of War.
  • Estrogen Brigade: Jim himself has perhaps one of biggest collection of fangirls out of all the Disney human males. The fact he is voiced by a now big time celebrity Joseph Gordon-Levitt, his character design, his Troubled, but Cute personality, the fact that he is one of the rare handsome Disney heroes that remains single, his smarts and action scenes are all factors to this, even with the fact that he's 15 years old.
  • Fanon: Fanfic writers have given Captain Amelia the surname Smollett after the captain from the original story.
  • Fetish Fuel: Captain Amelia is popular with the Furry Fandom.
  • Genius Bonus: Etherium, the substance that fills the space between the planets, the stuff that ships fly through, is based on a real element of 19th century physics, Ether, believed (by some, to this day) to be the medium light travels through, instead of what is now normally taken for "empty space". The concept, once taken for granted, is now only known to those who study 19th century physics, and serious Steam Punk fans.
  • It Was His Sled: It's Treasure Island—a story that most everybody knows by heart, regardless of whether they've actually read the book. The film does add its own twists and ideas here and there, but don't expect any major surprises.
  • Launcher of a Thousand Ships: Jim has been paired with every Disney girl ever (particularly Ariel), extending to non-Disney girls like Odette and even anime girls like Sailor Moon and Princess Tutu. Ironically he is a Celibate Hero in the movie. He is also shipped a lot with Silver, and on the crossover slashy side, Sinbad, Aladdin or Dimitri are popularly shipped with him. Let's just say for a film featuring one of Disney's (Renaissance-onward) rare celibate heroes, the fans really like the idea of him finding more adventures out there...
  • Memetic Mutation: The animation frame of Jim turning to Morph. You know the one.
  • Moral Event Horizon: We get the idea that Scroop is a nasty guy, but then he proves it even more by gleefully sending Mr. Arrow to his death via black hole, only to turn around and place the blame entirely on Jim. In the end, Jim sends him tumbling into space in a similar manner.
    Scroop: Do say hello to Mr. Arrow for me.
    Jim: Tell him yourself!
  • Power-Up Letdown: The Mortars on the Battle at Procyon game. The bullet travels really slowly, so it's very easy to dodge, and to top it off a partial hit will cause less damage than stantard heavy weapons. Fortunately, it can be fixed with mods.
  • Spiritual Licensee: This is as close as we'll ever come to a Spelljammer movie. Or an Edge Chronicles movie, for that matter.
  • Ugly Cute: Morph's basically a wrinklier floating Ditto, but you can't help but go "Awww!" whenever you see him.
  • Uncanny Valley: Mr. Arrow.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The whole movie easily qualifies; the space sequences in particular are stunning.
  • The Woobie:
    • Jim could easily fall into woobie status, given his Disappeared Dad, stressful home life, and the unbelievable amount of abuse he receives from pretty much every character except Delbert and B.E.N.
    • Morph resembles a kicked puppy when Silver tells Jim that he cares just about the treasure.
